Doro is an entity who changes bodies like clothes, killing his hosts by reflex -- or design. He fears no one -- until he meets Anyanwu. Anyanwu is a shapeshifter who can absorb bullets and heal with a kiss...and savage anyone who threatens those she loves. She fears no one -- until she meets Doro. From African jungles to the colonies of America, Doro and Anyanwu weave together a pattern of destiny that not even immortals can imagine.

4.0 Wild Seed by Octavia E. Butler

2.0 Wild Seed winnowed from my collection
DNF - and worse. Returned for refund. Most of this has already been said in my interim post. I did a quick review on Audible.co.uk - this is the gist: If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?I think the book's flaws transcend personal taste, though I can see that other ...

4.0 Wild Seed

With the two main characters near-immortals and a timeline ranging from 1690 to 1840, there's quite a lot of death; both the main characters and I grew a little weary of it but that was the point. Really enjoyed the fl...
